Subject: June 74
This AUD recording is as good as any from the era. The sound is airy and the mix is generally good. As with all AUDs, audience noise is a part of the listening experience, but there's not much on this recording.
It's difficult list highlights because there are a lot of very interesting musical moments -- particularly in Jerry's playing (for example, his noodling on Greatest Story shows his love of Miles Davis, and he takes Playing in the Band right into outer space. The band covers a lot of my personal favourites with only one or two songs I'm not big on.
If you like shows from spring/summer of '74, and if you like AUDs, this bud's for you!
I found this show a little below average for the period (june 74). The first set has some nice song selections, and the Playin is nice, typical '74. But the second set to me is just average. Not bad by any means, but not near as hot as 6/18, or the 2 shows on 6/26 and 6/28. I think the band may have been a little tired by the end of the tour. I should note I have the sbd and have not listened to this aud source, but wanted to reply to the last review.
Subject: Listen closely for early Slipknot doodle.
This show was my first live tape. Got it about 6 months after the show. It was the first of many hundred to follow. Some great jazzy, spacey stuff here during Playin'.
The Slipknot doodle is about 40 seconds into the second round of Playing in the Band (Right after Uncle John's). Is anyone aware of any other early remnants of this Blues for Allah stuff in '74?
